Description:
The aim of this course is to introduce particle physics students to various hadron colliders, particle detectors, methods and programming languages used in data analysis and currently interesting topics related to hadron collision experiments. The course can be divided into 3 parts. The first part describes and compares the operation of existing colliders and introduces accelerator physics. The second part describes the programming languages used in data analysis (ROOT, PAW, PYTHIA and similar) and the most commonly used programming methods, such as jet finder algorithms, particle identification etc. Finally, the last part of the course would look into a current topic of interest in the hadron physics community, dependent on student's particular interests (particle flow, quark-gluon plasma, ridge and similar).
